My experience with Dr. Elskens is the best . He was very through and took the time to explain the surgery. Before and after the surgery. He treated me with absolute professionalism. He explained what to expect and his follow up care is impeccable. His staff is helpful and knowledgeable. And they are very friendly and respectful. Dr. Elskens does not make you feel like you don't matter or feel rushed. I would highly recommend him, he is honest and gives you your options.

I would highly recommend Dr. Elskens. He explained my back condition in terms I could understand and used evidenced-based criteria. His actions allowed me to make an informed decision about my back health, specifically as to whether to have back surgery.

He saw me right away, even though another doctor did my surgery AND I live in another state. He called in his rep to check my implant (versus saying I needed a replacement right away). After hours of try to reprogram did not work, he scheduled my surgery for the following week, the week of Thanksgiving! He is nice but very much to the point and did an excellent job. This implant is the only one I have not had problems with. I would highly recommend him. Also, Diane, his nurse, is excellent.
